WordPress Document Manager for Managing Your HR Documents

Use the WP ERP Document Manager to Manage Your HR Documents

The fact that technology is now flourishing at its best is a real boon to us. This means, who cares for lollygagging Post Offices to send a simple letter while there is Email out there?

In fact, the replacement of old technologies by the latest alternatives has become a commonplace nowadays.

Digital storage device like Williams Tube (with only memory of .0624 KB) was first invented in 1890 which had emphasized the notion that it is very much likely to establish a paperless office. Later on, the advent of the internet in the late 90's has dramatically made it possible to store any contents digitally on the server.

However, if you are an Enterprise owner, you will notice that you have to store tons of papers regarding the information of the employees. Since paper is a physical matter, there is a high chance that they can be damaged by water, fire etc or they can be stolen too. This is the first and foremost reason for the necessity to store information in digital documents.

In this Article, we will be discussing the importance of a WordPress Document Manager and how to identify an excellent one.

The extension can be accessed in two ways. Both the Admin and Employees can access the file repositories with their respective account. However, Admin or Manager has default ownership to all the files uploaded by the employees. Interestingly, the files uploaded by an employee is not accessible by the other employees for some privacy issues other than the admin. Since the files uploaded by employees are only visible by the Admin and that respective employees can see their respective file repositories is pretty handy for security enhancement.

Freeing Up Office Storage

There is no need for file cabinets, boxes, and storage bins if you are using a similar system or app. However, Documents that must have to be kept as hard copies can often be stored in less expensive locations, such as an offsite warehouse or vault. If you are using WordPress to manage your company (i.e. employees, contacts, accounting etc.), then you can consider a good WordPress Document Manager.
